Considering the original @desandro's Masonry library a kind of reference implementation, I believe that native CSS solution should cover as many its [use cases](https://masonry.desandro.com/options.html) as possible. In my opinion, items spanning multiple columns are the essential part of the masonry layout concept, so limiting it with single-column items, as it would be inevitable with Flexbox approach, is not a way to go. While I understand the concerns about extra complexity that mixing Masonry stuff into Grid would bring, I wholeheartedly agree with @jensimmons's point about practical benefits of reusing the built-in Grid tools to control the layout of Masonry items.

After all, the subtitle of the Masonry library homepage itself states that it is the "Cascading _grid layout_ library"... :)
